Reason User Banned (3 days): Ignoring staff post
Heard from a doctor who spoke to his Italian colleagues that they're kind of assuming about 70% of them are infected, but most doctors can continue working because the symptoms are rather mild. Reading a lot more stories now too of people who were tested and just had one or two days of fever and are good to go again. I'm just recovering from two days of fever but even if there were multiple cases in my town and near my work, they wouldn't test me, so who knows. For all this talk about SARS×HIV^2, I think this will shake out to being not much worse than the regular flu. The kind of systemic crashes you see in Hubei and Lombardy is simply what happens when 50% of a population comes down with a flu like strain at the same time. And that's why it's important to delay the progress as much as possible by vigorous washing, staying at home and not attending large gatherings. Ultimately I think that WHO (?) doctor was right. 50-70% of the world will get this. Just like actual flu.
